Live Gameboy Performance Techniques with Paul Weinstein AKA Chipocrite Ever wonder exactly what a Game Boy musician is doing onstage besides pushing Start, dancing like a fool and pumping his or her fist dramatically? Philly’s own Chipocrite will take you through some live chip performance techniques, from manipulating sounds in pre-tracked songs, to incorporating “real” instruments, to using synching technology for an expanded experience. At the end of the presentation, members of the audience will have a chance to explore LSDJ’s Live Mode to create a unique, on-the-spot Game Boy remix.

Before 8static this month we’re doing something a bit different. We know you all are very opinionated people, so this month we’re giving you a chance to share some of those opinions. In a town hall style meeting led by Jenn de la Vega (of The Tank, and Pulsewave) and the Philly chip crew, we’ll take some time to discuss the issues relevant to 8static, chip music and the chip scene that are important to you.

Armed with nothing more than an iPhone 4, Emily K. Feder started filming chip shows in October 2010. Less than a year later, she’s posted more than 1,000 videos and attracted almost 64,000 viewers on her YouTube channel, the Chip Music Chronicle. Emily is dedicated to capturing and presenting a true-to-life visual and audio representation of the live chip experience — “to document chip music performances with complete sets, tracks and good quality audio and video that properly captures the mood of these performances; to do justice to the hard work these people put into the scene and provide a chronicle of that dedication; and to provide all performers with an equal voice and eliminate the gate-keeping element.” Join her before this month’s 8static to learn more about her mission, see some highlights from her massive library and get an inside look at what goes into shooting guerilla-style chip vids.

Music theory for chip musicians by Animal StyleThis talk will attempt to cover general music theory concepts and how they relate to creating chip music or video game tunes. A quick overview of intervals, scales, chords, forms, rhythms, and harmony will be reviewed, and following this, there will be a discussion about how these concepts relate to making music in the electronic medium as opposed to using standard instruments. This workshop is an attempt to look past the technical details of trackers and sequencers in order to get to the heart and inner workings of our notes, chords and rhythms i.e. how they interact to create what we call chip music.

Copyright, Creative Commons, and Your Music by Bit Shifter Making your music (or other digital art) available online is a great way to get seen and heard. It’s also a great way to get your work appropriated and used in ways you may not have foreseen or intended. Understanding the fundamental principles behind the idea of copyright is an important first step in protecting your work — not just from malicious intent, but also from simple misunderstandings or incorrect assumptions on the part of those who might enjoy your work enough to want to use it in their own way. This presentation is intended to shed light on the basic concepts behind intellectual property — owning what you make, and defining how it can (and can’t) be used. In this discussion we’ll touch on what copyright is, what Creative Commons licenses are, how they differ, and how they can be used together to protect your work, while still allowing it to be enjoyed by others.

Pro Audio Workshop “Know Your Sound: Making friends with your Mixer”Now that you’re finished writing your E.P. (Bit Shifter is going to love it!), it’s time to play some shows and record that lovely music for all the world to hear. But getting the best quality sound out of your Gameboy/Commodore 64/Circuit-Bent Pikachu depends on a lot of factors, and figuring out how all those glorious lo-fi sounds fit together in a mix can be a tricky task.Fear not, audio engineer Gabe Liberti of 2 Player Productions will be your guide as you explore the hidden depths of your esoteric audio equipment. By understanding proper gain staging and seeing the joys of retaining dynamics in your mixes, you will suddenly find yourself in a place free of unwanted harmonic distortion and wimpy sounding WAV kick tracks.

IN/OSX/NIX laptops are all fair game (especially if you have a USB joypad) as well as cracked PSP or the linux GP2X handheld. Or if you prefer to just sit back and sw0p some 5iles that’s cool too!
